Woodland Masterclass

If you are passionate about landscape photography, one of its elements that you will experience most the time are trees and woodland. Without doubt one of the most difficult environments in which to work is woodland and this is the reason why we have tailor made this Master Class. For years aspect2i have been visiting woodland environments with our workshops and seen the challenges they present to photographers, and this is the workshop that will overcome them.

Photographs of woodland can transport the viewer in another place of peace and tranquillity but making compositions and tackling what is often regarded as chaotic is a skill in itself. The aim of these three days is to teach you the specific techniques of making beautiful portraits of the woodland environments so you will be able to explore further the many woodland and forest environments you may visit during you time out with your camera.

There are many questions that we will explore during this master class such as which lenses to use, how to cope with the deep shadows and bright highlights associated with woodland, but most importantly, how to distil the environment down into beautiful, simple compositions that capture the essence of the place.

Because this is called a master class, do not be fooled into thinking you have to be an expert at woodland photography. We called it a masterclass because woodland will be the one genre of photography we want you to master during our time together and we will cover everything about it!

Lastly, photographing woodland is an inspiring experience for us all but the real reward to a photographer is the finished print. As with all our masterclasses we will be holding in-depth image editing and printing session so you can take home your own masterpiece from your woodland masterclass.
